Last time I was there we drove out to Aspen one day and went to Woody Creek. I was a big fan of Hunter S. Thompson so we went to eat (and drink) at the Woody Creek Tavern, and also went to the store next door and met his wife. I'd recommend making that trip if you have time. Aspen is a pretty cool little town.

Roy Oswalt

Johan Santana

And hopefully I'll add Jake Arrieta to the list after a couple more great seasons.

Also a side note - Kenny Powers could have been one of the best ever, if he had just put forth the effort and stayed out of trouble. Sad story, really.

I thought Jones has a 6 month injury suspension? This is shaping up to be a pretty good card.

And because I'm a Cubs fan, and he was a darn good hitter...Mark Grace.

It's not Rick. He's the leader. Negan needs Rick to steer his people in to working for him.

Plus, it would just be too big of a deviation from the books. Rick is THE main character. It's not him. Not that I disagree with anything you're saying. It's just not happening. If Rick ever dies, which I doubt, it will either be because the show is ending or the ratings are so badly in the tank that they need to do something majorly major.

It should be Glenn or Daryl. Either of those would make the maximum impact, which is the point of all this. Abraham of Eugene would not accomplish that.

Oh, and I'm really pissed about the cliffhanger too. They built up to this moment all season and didn't really deliver. Negan was great and all, but this wasn't satisfying at all.

Personally, my problem isn't with Diaz. It just doesn't make sense to have a new champion move up two weight classes to fight a guy who isn't even top 5 in his own weight class, and who is also moving up a class. Just because you're matching up two guys who talk a lot of smack, doesn't make it a good idea. The first time there was an injury and they were scrambling to find an opponent, I get that...but why do it again? And make it the main event on what should be the company's biggest card to date? Doesn't make sense to me at all. I'm sure it will be entertaining though, and I suppose that's what's most important.

After the Aldo fight, I would never count Connor out. Although if I were a betting man, I'd take Dos Anjos.

Comment 31 Mar 2016

I prefer dark roasts. And my office buys coffee from Brioso in Columbus so I consider myself lucky to drink that every day! That, Crimson Cup, Stauf's, or Backroom are my favorite coffee roasters.

Comment 31 Mar 2016

Am I the only one who doesn't want to see a McGregor/Diaz rematch? Didn't care about that fight the first time around, sure as heck don't now. McGregor vs Don Anjos would have been awesome (not sure on Dos Anjos injury status), and McGregor vs Edgar is a fight I would LOVE to see. I know Connor is going to move up eventually but IMO this path he's on is a mistake. UFC seems to be just letting him do whatever the hell he wants while real challengers in his weight class are waiting for an opportunity. Interim belt is a start but both Aldo and Edgar will know that it isn't a real belt.

Comment 22 Mar 2016

I didn't care for it much either, although I did manage to finish season 1.

I don't think I've ever hated a TV character as much as I hate Kilgrave. And I don't mean I hate him in a "can't wait to see him die" way but more of a "I can't stand watching this whiny asshole anymore (turns TV off)" way.

Comment 15 Mar 2016

I know this is supposed to be this year's final rankings, but is Alabama's graphics dept trolling Ohio State by ranking scUM ahead of them? Or trolling Sparty by leaving off the St?

Comment 08 Mar 2016

Definitely seeing Torche, Kvelertak and Baroness in Columbus. No Columbus date for Black Sabbath so I may have to make travel arrangements to see them somewhere. Last tour for them.

Comment 04 Mar 2016

Unfortunately we will not be playing Coachella this year. You know, working on a new record so the timing just wasn't right :)

Comment 04 Mar 2016

I wish, because GUNS N ROSES!!

Comment 02 Mar 2016

Never hurts to connect with some recruiters. I usually dismiss the messages, but you never know when you might need a recruiter's services so I do make sure to stay in touch with some.

And there are certainly REALLY bad ones...but there are many more good ones.

Comment 02 Mar 2016

Yes - you'll definitely want to make sure your email preferences are set up for minimal email because they will seriously email you 10 times a day.

Comment 29 Feb 2016

Some people at work were having issues with Chrome last Friday...could be problems with the browser itself, not the site. If there are issues with Chrome, I'm sure they will be resolved quickly.

Comment 09 Feb 2016

Yes, that is how I understand it to have happened, and that's how I explained it. Or attempted to, anyway. The merger I was referring to was the NFL/AFL.

Comment 08 Feb 2016

Not really sure what you mean. The NFL and AFL agreed to merge and play a championship game between the two, which would come to be called the Super Bowl, in 1966. Are you saying that's not what happened? I wasn't alive at the time, I'm pretty sure that's what happened.

Comment 08 Feb 2016

I don't think it's trolling if you believe what you're saying. And I thought, maybe I'm wrong and it would be interesting to see what others thought.
